Does hydration effects the texture of your skin? Obviously, YES!! You might see skin peeling and also causing pimples and acne yo!! I’m not kidding, if you have not take proper hydration, it starts getting wrinkles, dried blackheads white heads, blocked pores this is how pimples came from no matter male or females.
I’m not a professional here but this is how I keep my face hydrated. The daily simple steps:
This is a must!! Clean your face daily get yourself any cleanser from any store, Guardian or Watson. Me? I’ll wash mine twice with cold or warm water; do not use hot water if you’ve terrible dry skin.
Make sure you’ve removed your make ups and sunscreen completely. ^~^
At least once a week. I’ll do it twice a week sometimes, depends on the face condition. I don’t want block pores and forms pimples. Argh~ who like pimples, right? Normally, I’ll put more moisture/ apply mask after I exfoliated to prevent skin goes rough dry.
Be good to your face, I means do not towel dry with rough way, dap it softly. You can apply toner using facial cotton, it helps to removes dust and stain but I prefer to pour a little bit of toner on my hand and tap it on my face, hold so it can absorb more.
Get something that suitable, different people possess different type of skin. Lotion meant to be mild compared gel type less sticky even mild-er. For very very dry skin, you can go for cream type. I love products which contain Hyaluronic Acid and I don’t mind using both types.
WRINKLES is the cause of sun damage. Okay, now I scared you. Have you put on your sunscreen today? At least a SPF 15 but I prefer it to be SPF 30 with UV protection. Fret not if you’re lazy or rushing everyday, get moisturizer that contains UV protection. =]
Actually you can do it often, everyday if you’ve the time and patient. Mostly I’ll do it one or twice a week, get myself any masks from Sasa or sometimes I’ve forget to stock in, *smirk* I’ll do DIY.
Easy peasy: Facial cottons and your favorite toner or unwanted toner also can. Like my friends used to give me unsuitable toner for them, I’ll use it this way.
Well, try to use a water based toner. If you’re using Hada Labo’s lotion type toner that would take quite some time to wet the cottons yet I don’t think the cottons gonna absorb thick lotion thou. It would be wasted!
Here goes~ I gonna finish my toner soon. Yes, I finish my toner in a fast pace but don’t worry about getting a fine or expensive toner. I’m thinking to get myself a cheaper but well hydrating toner for my DIY mask purpose. *winks*
*pulls pulls~~* for better coverage. Hahahaha!! Of course, I do use paper mask, better absorption and better coverage but cottons are always the best when I’ve always forget to stock in. Arghh!
Stingy people like me, I’d cover the parts which I think it’s dry or mostly dehydrated. Case like me, add one more cotton perhaps for fully coverage.
Besides skincare, I’d tune from the inner. #Detoxify is require especially for like me who love to eat!! You should have clear your tummy once awhile, I’d love yogurt drinks, need not to say Yakult is the best for me because I’ve weak tummy, fast immuned!!
#Eat healthy! Nonetheless to say, fruits and vegetables take rules so grab more greeny leafy vegetables that are rich with anti-oxidants also these: pomegranates, blueberries, goji berries, dried small red beans, tomatoes, beans and nuts. Foods that keep your skin hydrated, smooth, soft and beautiful: nuts, avocado and fish!! *yums* No worries you can always take supplements like fish oil capsules or cod liver oil instead.
Consume lots of water, at least 8glasses daily. Keep yourself a bottle of your favorite drink handy to remind you of #drinking. For me, I’m a all time green tea lover yo! By the way, try to avoid having too much coffee and also alcohol, said: its diuretic qualities cause dehydration.
How often you #exercise? Any sports you liking? At least takes time to workout, yoga, simple stretching, climb the stairs, walk your dog, cycle to work or class. OMG, did I just say that? No, I wont cycle to class or work thou. Just a suggestion and friendly advice: is good for you and your skin when you know how to #destress youself.
Stop movies and dramas, try not to hang out at night so often precisely don’t always stayed up late, #sleep and rest early at least 7 – 8hours to get yourself a healthy metabolism. Or you can always consult professional or go for a pampering treatment sessions.
